BACKGROUND

The EIASM Workshop on Family Firm Management Research has become one of the most important venues for scholars to gather and discuss current research on the family businesses in Europe and beyond. The 9th annual EIASM Workshop, is organized and hosted by University of Jyväskylä, School of Business and Economics and Hanken School of Economics. The 9th workshop continues the tradition of successful academic events that have been created at the previous meetings in Jönköping (2005, 2007 & 2012), Nice (2006), Naples (2008), Hasselt (2009), Barcelona (2010) and Witten (2011). Like the previous workshops, the 9th edition will attract a large number of established and emerging scholars from family business research and related fields to share their interest and perspectives on family firm management. The workshop will surely provide great opportunities for researchers to share their experiences, give feedback on each other’s work and to form new research collaborations.

 

CALL FOR PAPERS

Creative industries are becoming more and more significant in economy. Family firms offer interesting examples of the firms where creative resources and resourcefulness play an important role for competitiveness and continuity. Already in 2003, the total value of creative industries was more than 650 billion euros, thus outweighing both the car industry and ICT sectors. The growth in Europe has been about 10 per cent more than in other industries.

Typical examples of creative industries are animation production, architecture, films, radio and tv, arts and galleries, design, handicraft, sports and recreation services, advertising and marketing communication, publishing, software, music performance and entertainment, games, recorded music products, bios and theatres. Creative resources are needed in any industry but they are of vital importance in the industries where creativity is the dominant logic of competitiveness (“contents is the king”) and where, for example, intellectual property rights (IPR) often are the most important economic asset. Resourcefulness means multidimensional, systemic intelligence and/or contextual sharpness. It helps family firms to better discover business opportunities, or to create them. It is the driver for continuous innovation but also a necessity in coping with and overcoming business challenges.

We invite papers that address different aspects of the conference theme as studied in the contextual setting of family businesses. While submission of papers related to the main theme are particularly encouraged, the workshop continues its tradition to accept papers relevant to any area of family firm management, and which add value to the development of the family business research field. These can be, for example:
   - literature review papers,
   - state-of art papers,
   - papers of various managerial and/or leadership phenomena when studied in the family business context,
   - qualitative or quantitative empirical studies, incl. case studies., of empirical data.
